This is the first time I have seen this group and it appears it might be the place to be. About a year ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Prior to that absolutely no problems with my by blood work. A connection is sue, I believe, was that I mad a trip to California in the boonies and immediately following that I mad a trip to London England. I cam home sicker then a dog. It was thought at the time it was H1N1.
My doctor sent me to an endo specialist and he put me on this EL Troxin. Withing a month everything started heading south. I had tremor's that got to the point I couldn't hold a a glass. My right eye lid drooped to almost closed. I could carry on a conversation with slurring and finally I couldn't remember words. I couldn't remember who my wife was and I am not exaggerating. All I wanted to do was sleep, I was terrified of telephone calls. Forget the computer, this is the first time I have worked on the computer in weeks.
One thing I did read was that someone had found an issue about the generic drugs having something wrong with the coating or the way they were manufactured. The drug was okay.
After a day in the hospital where they did the blood work ups and an MRI and poked and prodded the decision was, they didn't know and I basically got washed off. That was it, don't know, go home and die. But, the high side here is, for some reason I stopped taking this medication along with Lithium Carbide, which was being used as prophylactic for Cluster Head Aches and I can now carry on a better life, not normal, but a heck of a lot better.
If someone can add to this I would greatly appreciate it and even better, if I have helped someone that makes this so much better.
